Most tornado's are usually heading east or north east, often between 40 to 80 miles per hour. If you spot it in time, head south. If there is no traffic, no pot holes, and no turns, most cars should be able to out run it. If you do not have time, try to find shelter in an empty ditch. It will probably be raining, and water will collect. Also, you don't want any large debris that the wind can pick up and slam into you. Stay away from any overpasses. They become a wind tunnel as the tornado stirs things up (including cars). If the tornado comes up behind you, and you don't have time to get out of the car; make sure your seat belt is snug, and hang on. It's going to be a rough ride. Be prepared to duck, things may come through the windows and doors, too. Remember, even just seeing a tornado in the distance makes for a great story to tell the grand kids, you just have to live long enough to have grand kids.
I love watching The Weather Channel
